Wu Shui County's storage warehouse was a former auto repair factory. Into the storage warehouse, deep and deserted space was filled with various kinds of debris such as food, medicine, and metal equipment.
"Captain Jiang, the things here are not divided into categories. You need to search carefully." Xiang Xuehai stood in front of these supplies and turned back with an apologetic smile.
"It doesn't matter." Jiang Liushi nodded. In the search for supplies, Jiang Liushi seemed to have a unique talent. He quickly found piles of metal materials and stacked them together. Many metal materials had accumulated dirt, so his body and hands became dark quickly.
At that moment, he suddenly smelled an elegant fragrance. "I'll help you." Before Jiang Liushi could even react, Xiang Xuehai had joined him.
In the empty warehouse, two people were busy. After a while, Jiang Liushi and Xiang Xuehai finally found all the necessary metal materials and piled up a small hill.
"It's enough right?" Looking at the metal materials piled up in front of him, Xiang Xuehai wiped the sweat from her forehead, but a few black marks remained.
"You…here..." Seeing the black marks on Xiang Xuehai's forehead, Jiang Liushi couldn't help but smile and reminded her.
After understanding Jiang Liushi's intention, Xiang Xuehai wiped her forehead quickly.
"Let me help you. Your hands are also dark." Jiang Liushi smiled and helped her wipe the mark with his clean sleeves.
"I'm sorry..." Xiang Xuehai smiled.
Jiang Liushi carefully wiped her forehead, and the black marks were wiped off, revealing her white and tender skin. Xiang Xuehai licked her lips and looked at Jiang Liushi.
"Captain Jiang, thank you for killing that mutant pufferfish. You...when are you planning to leave?" Her voice shook. The reason she had personally taken Jiang Liushi to the warehouse was quite out of selfishness. Xiang Xuehai wanted to stay with Jiang Liushi alone. She knew very clearly that the man in front of her didn't like to speak much, but he had great ideas. He still had something to do. She could not keep him here. Although she knew that, Xiang Xuehai still felt a kind of uncontrollable loss.
"We will stay for a day and then we will leave," Jiang Liushi answered. He had noticed the strangeness in Xiang Xuehai's voice.
"Well, it's okay. I'll send many things to your car. If there's anything else you need me to help you with, Captain Jiang, please tell me," said Xiang Xuehai.
Jiang Liushi nodded. "That... I'll leave." He did not know why, but he headed down and did not look at Xiang Xuehai's eyes.
Jiang Liushi walked step by step toward the warehouse's iron gate. Just before he was about to step out of the door, a warm voice came from behind him. "Jiang Liushi, I will miss you. If you have the opportunity, I hope you can come to Wu Shui County again. I'll be here waiting for you." In the empty warehouse, that voice sounded very lonely. Looking at Jiang Liushi's back, Xiang Xuehai tried her best to control her emotions. In this terrible post-apocalyptic world, loved ones being separated by death was common.
Jiang Liushi took a deep breath and then paused for two seconds, but finally stepped out again. "Okay."
After hearing Jiang Liushi's words, Xiang Xuehai felt embarrassed. Did Jiang Liushi promise her? Could it even be regarded as a promise?
Jiang Liushi quickly walked back to his MCV. At that time, Wu Shui County was full of people. The crowd around them was cooking, and there were still several pots of thick white fish soup, which was quite attractive. Although the mutant pufferfish Jiang Liushi had brought back couldn't be eaten, it helped to kill almost all the little water monsters in the water. Without the threat of those water monsters, the survivors naturally began to capture other ordinary mutant fish. They used fishing nets to catch a few big fishes in a short period of time.
"Brother, where is Boss Xiang? Why she didn't come down with you?" In his MCV, seeing Jiang Liushi alone, Jiang Zhuying felt very strange. And she was keenly aware that her brother's mood seemed a bit strange. "Hey, brother…did anything happen between you and Boss Xiang? Yes or no? It's terrible…." Jiang Zhuying asked happily.
"Don't make irresponsible remarks." Jiang Liushi answered.
"And brother, have you thought of how to talk about it with Sisters Xiyu and Yuxin?"
"What are saying?" Jiang Liushi was speechless.
"I'm hungry. Did you cook?" Jiang Liushi changed the topic quickly. But then he found that Ran Xiyu was not far away from them. Seeing that scene, Jiang Liushi felt a little bit embarrassed.
"You are my brother. I care about your love affairs." Jiang Zhuying wrinkled her nose and gave Jiang Liushi a delicious piece of meat. "We have just eaten and left some for you."
Jiang Liushi was indeed hungry.
In order to kill that mutant pufferfish, his mental power was highly concentrated. The brain's nerves had been observing the monster for a long time, which took a toll on the body.
Presently, he had eaten a plate of mutant meat all by himself. After eating, he changed the missile boat back to its first form, the minibus.
'Starseed!' Jiang Liushi shouted in his mind.
Starseed's panel automatically appeared. At the same time, besides the dashboard of his MCV, small grooves also popped out. The metal groove shone with luster. Jiang Liushi pushed a glittering mutant nucleus into the groove. The metal groove automatically closed immediately.
'Detected one level 2+ mutant nucleus.'
'Energy Laboratory's progress: 30%. Matching energy is sufficient. Should the energy be used to finish the energy laboratory's construction, or not?'
'Continue!' Jiang Liushi answered without any hesitation. It was something that he really needed. As long as the energy lab could be built, he could produce many purer evolutionary crystals than the military. These things were completely able to replace mutant meat. If they could consume them often, it would help to increase the speed of evolution. For ordinary people, it could help them to obtain a special ability. If it was possible to mass produce high-purity evolutionary crystals, Jiang Liushi believed that the Shi Ying Squad's overall strength would be greatly increased.
